Greg Schappert (aka Donor) is a DJ/Producer based out of Brooklyn, NY. Having lived in cities such as Barcelona, Madrid, Tokyo and Brooklyn, where he currently resides, Greg has acquired quite a few musical inﬂuences.

To the heads that know, Lory D is up there with the all-time greats. One of the chief instigators of the ‘Sound of Rome’ – a phrase he’d later send up – in the 80s-turn-90s, he took the embryonic sound of Detroit and Chicago and splattered it together at velocity with various iterations of ramped-up European rave and hardcore, both as a producer and head honcho of the Sounds Never Seen label. His sets at 69, an infamous club situated just outside of Glasgow, are the stuff of legend (as you’ll read below);
take the adage about The Velvet Underground‘s legacy and repurpose it for an entire generation of Scottish DJs, producers and label owners and you’re close. The dude gets more juice out of a 303 than pretty much anyone else on earth, except maybe Aphex Twin. Even then, it’s a close call...[http://boilerroom.tv/the-legend-of-lory-d/]

What is techno?
Scientists and philosophers have long since pondered the concept of its musical definition since it burst out of Detroit in the mid-‘80s. Is it that notion of the “ghost in the machine”, of soul from electronics that its inventors elicited? Or is it more the repetitive throb and thump of 4/4 beats and slow-burning momentum that the Berghain generation are proponents of? Croatian producer Petar Dundov’s stunning music manages to marry both ideals in the most explosive of fashions.
Sonorous Episode #012 Fabrizio Lapiana
Sonorous presents the twelfth appointment with the heroes of techno. We are proud to announce our next upcoming episode, the podcast of the talented Fabrizio Lapiana [ Attic Music ]
Submerged in both Djing and production, the Techno music born Fabrizio Lapiana looks to the future with his label "Attic Music". He started his career as a Dj back in 1994 influenced mainly by the early 90's sound of Rome and Detroit as well by the first european pioneers of electronic music.
Marcel Heese was born in 1983 in a small town near Berlin. At the tender age of 17, he accidentally encountered electronic dance music for the first time, after hearing sets from Love Parade on the radio. Instantly catching the bug, he started getting deeper into it week by week, soon leaving commercial sounds behind him.

Shapednoise describes his sound as "grinding Electronics/Noise and Speaker Ripping Techno," and we're inclined to agree.
The Italian producer has a way of doing things to your speakers that you don't expect. His music's physical in the way that fevers and heartbreak and fear are physical, affecting every sense at once and casting a shadow over every inch of your periphery. He's got a background in audio engineering, and he uses it in the most effective possible sense.
